Yes, your documents are safe. Delve never changes any permissions. Only you can see your private
documents in Delve.
Also, other people can't see your private activities, such as what documents you've read, what emails you've
sent and received, or what Lync conversations you've been in. Other people can see that you've modified a
document, but only if they have access to the same document.
What you see in Delve is different from what other people see. You can see your private documents and
other documents that you have access to. Other people can see their documents and documents that they
have access to.
